The author of this work has grappled with a com prehensive task in undertaking to narrate' the progress of geographical discovery in Australia, from the ??earliest period to the present day. Beginning with the antiquities of his subject, he discusses the claims of ?the early Spanish and Portuguese navigators to the ?discovery of the country, hut finds nothing, except legend and conjecture, till we reach the com .mencement of the 17th century, when ' the Dutch, .in the course of their voyages to . and from their eastern possessions, made some isolated discoveries on the north and western coasts, which are indicated oy the names still retained on the maps.

MINERAL STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

MINERAL STATISTICS. Tho following report on tho mineral statistics for 1864 has been published by tho Mining depart ment : — The total number of persons engaged in mining for gold is now given with more accuracy than heretofore. The mining registrars are required to collect the returns quarterly instead of monthly ; and as their returns aro published in detail every quarter, showing the number of miners working in each locality, it is presumed that no great errors can have been made. To adopt any other more elabo rate plan for obtaining the numbers would involve great cost, and it is probable that the results would not bo more satisfactory than under . the system now in operation : for tho alluvial miners, in such districts as Beech worth and Maryborough, are for ever moving from place to place, and it is nearly impracticable to follow them and note their numbers. The number of persons engaged in searching for gold is steadily decreasing. Every allowance being made for una voidable ...

THE REV. MR GRACE, HIS ESCAPE AND HIS INGRATITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

THE REV. MR GRACE. HrS ESCAPE AND HIS INGRATITUDE. After the escape of tho Rev. Mr Grace from the horrible fate which threatened him whilst, in the hands of the rebel fanatics of New Zealand, he pub lished a letter of thanks in the Auckland journals, in which the name of Capt. Levy, to whom he was mainly indebted for his escape, wns studiously omitted. This ingrntitnde called forth the following remarks from the Neio Zealand Herald: — It mnsfc havo been with pain that the inhabi tants of this city perused the letter of tho Rev. T. S. Grace which appeared in two of the daily journals of yesterday. Ingratitude in any man is ono of the basest of crimes, but in a minister of the Gospel it passes almost beyond terms of condemnation. To all thoso who have been instrumental in his rescue Mr Grace return thnnks, except to two, and these two tho men who alono risked their lives and sacri ficed their property to save him.

THE SALMON IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

THE SALMON IN TASMANIA. Wo regret to learn, from a reliable private source, that tho impressions calculated to be left upon the public mind by some recent statements iu tho Hob art Town journals, in reference to the condition of tho salmon parr in Tasmania, arc far from being in accordance with tho true state of affairs. The ideas convoyed in tho announcement in question wore that, in consequence of an unexpected mor tality having broken out amongst the young fishes, a portion only of the survivors, amounting to IS 3 in number, had been liberated from tho ponds into tho River Plenty. Tho truth, however, is that the 483 parr thus liberated constitute, as far as can at present bo ascertained, all tho living representatives of the great salmon family at present inhabiting tho waters of Tasmania. As soon as the mortality abovo referred' to was observed, tho breeding ponds wore immediately, by direction of somo of tho commissioners, and with tho concurrence of Mr Ruinsbottoni, so far dra...

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT DUNE DIN. We have again to chronicle a most disastrous firo in Dunedin, resulting in tho des ruc tion of seven buildings. A few minutos before nine o'clock, on the night of the 6th of March, several persons passing through the Octu gon observed smoke issuing from a right-of-way, running between Mr Gerrand's (late Perriinan's) hay, corn and produce store, and tho largo iron mongery storo belonging to Mr Henry. When the alarm was first given, Captain Hobbs happened to be in Prince's street, in the vicinity of the Critorion Hotel, and arriving in time to prevent the persons who first assembled from smashing in the front door ef the store. In company with the first two members of the brigadn who arrived ho found a door in the right-of-way wo have already mentioned, whioh opened into a collar under the corn store. This door was burst open and several persons essayed to enter, but were driven back by the dense volumes of smoke which rushed out in their faces. When the ...

THE MONTH. ?. ' ? ? ? '? ? ? ♦ — : ? ' Both Houses of Parliament ' are now up for the Easter recess, -which terminates on the 2nd May. The political position remains about the same as when the March mails were despatched. It was for some time thought that the Government would not pursue the extreme coarse of tacking the tariff to the Appropriation Bill before submitting these mea sures to the Upper House ; but the Ministry, firm in their determination to insist upon the rightful posi tion of the Lower Chamber in dealing with money -bills and taxation, have resolved to adhere to their [original intention. A compromise was spoken of, an impression being prevalent that the Legislative .Council would adopt the Government measures, on condition that they were sent up in the customary form, but nothing has come of it. In the mean time, the Upper House, determined to protect its privileges to the utmost, and with every desire to assume dictatorial powers, has appointed a aeleot committee o...

WHAMBEYAN CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 19 April 1865

WHAMBEYAN CAVES. The Whambeyan Caves are situate in the southern district of New South Wales, about sixty miles from Goulburn. The entrance, which lies in an amphi- theatre, surrounded by hills, is about 200 feet in height, and in shape resembles a gothic window. The walls are of marble interspersed with mica, and nu- merous stalactites are suspended from them and the roof. A creek appears to have at one time run through the cave ; and in several places the marble is quite polished, apparently by wild animals passing down to drink. There are numerous small chambers branch- ing off into the mountain, some of which are of con- siderable extent, but none of them have been thoroughly explored.

EXECUTION OF STACEY FOR THE CHILD MURDER AT EMERALD HILL. John Stacey, who was convicted at the last criminal sessions of the murder of a child at Eme- rald Hill by thrusting it down a cesspool, while in a jealous passion with its mother (his paramour), suffered the extreme penally of the law within the precincts of the Melbourne Central Gaol, at ten o'clock, on the 5th instant. While under sentence of death, the wretched man was visited by his sister, the mother of the murdered child, and several of his fellow-workmen, but not by his wife or either of four children he leaves in the Orphanage. He was attended by the Roman Catholic chaplain of the gaol, to whose ministrations he inclined an attentive ear, and he was accompanied to the scaffold by the Rev. Dr. Bleasdale. He made no public confession of his guilt, but expressed himself to his spiritual advisers as deeply penitent, and he suffered his doom with, fortitude.

It wus evidently not from any ill-will borne towards Mr Volkner personally that ho was sacrificed, else thevo would have beon no discussion.
